In the midst of a violent storm, the favorite pastor of Dogwood Springs, Missouri, disappears, and the town's citizens begin a frantic race against time to find him while his new wife struggles with her faith.

RN Lauren McCaffrey is falling in love with Dr. Grant Sheldon and his teenaged twins, but when he pops the question she panics. Is she prepared to slip into the place of her much-loved and much-missed predecessor? Maybe she's been one of those people chosen to remain single to she can be freer to help others. She can't live up to the image of "perfect wife and mother" Grant's late wife seems to portray.

Dr. Mitchell Caine's personal struggles are affecting his practice after destroying his marriage. Now he is experiencing glimmers of a memory that is too horrifying to believe, if it's true. To complicate matters, his estranged daughter has returned home after years of rebellion, broken and in desperate need of a love he isn't sure he knows how to give her. Can he hope to help her when he has his own dark secrets?

Urgent Care combines the breath-catching pace of authentic emergency medicine with the comfort of small-town faith and values.

Enjoyed the conclusion of this medical series set in small town of Dogwood Springs, Missouri. It was nice to catch up with favourite characters, who feel like old friends, and see how everything works out for them.






About the Author

HANNAH ALEXANDER is the pen name for the husband-and-wife writing team Dr. Mel and Cheryl Hodde. The Hoddes began collaborating on fiction books during their first date, actually a blind date arranged by their pastor. It all began when Cheryl shocked Mel with her request, “Can you help me paralyze someone without killing him?”

Cheryl went on to explain that she was an author and needed to paralyze a character in the book she was working on. Mel, a board-certified ER physician with a degree in osteopathy, was happy to assist. This was Mel's introduction to the world of fiction and Cheryl’s introduction to medicine. They were both fascinated, and a year and a half later they were married.

The fascination grew as Mel shared more of his career experiences and Cheryl's imagination took over. Together, they generated ideas for a story. With Mel's medical input, encouragement and help with plotting, and Cheryl's writing skills gleaned over 13 years of writing, they developed their first ER-style novel.

The couple established a pen name that rightfully distinguished the two sides of their writing. Cheryl chose Hannah from the Bible meaning “she delights in the Lord.” Mel chose Alexander, meaning “servant of mankind,” drawing from his career as a physician. After more than a decade of marriage, they have written more than a dozen books as Hannah Alexander and have garnered a Christy award for their work.

Mel and Cheryl reside in the Missouri Ozarks, where they like to set the majority of their books. You can find their website at www.hannahalexander.com
